Calling all whisky collectors and connoisseurs: the 2014 edition of the Johnnie Walker & Sons Private Collection is here and is making a big splash in the Scotch whisky world.

The idea behind the compilation is for people to build their own Scotch whisky collections year by year with batches that feature the superior artistry and “innovative spirit” behind the Johnnie Walker brand.read more
Brandied fruit is a delectable treat that’s a relatively easy process to make, not to mention it can be enjoyed at any time of the year.

Still, offer us any dessert (and we mean any) and we will gladly set aside a bottle of booze—unless the two are already combined. With today being the “Sweetest Day,” we’ve compiled a list of our beloved boozy baked goods that you can indulge in at home (or at the office if the mood strikes).read more

We love HBO shows almost as much as we love drinking, so we were pumped when they announced that plans are in the works to provide an online-only streaming subscription sometime in 2015. We can’t wait to kick back with a cold drink and binge watch some of the greatest shows on television—whether it’s old shows we want to see again or new ones we can’t wait to view for the first time. For now, we’ll just raise a glass in celebration with a few drinks inspired by the men from four of HBO’s top shows. Whether you come from New Jersey or Westeros, there’s a drink here for you and they’re all spoiler free.read more
